Why didn't I think of that?

Remember my post about our baseboards in the living room?

Not into lifting weights...

 I was pretty proud of my white-trash idea of the weights holding up the boards. I just didn't expect them to still be there, half a year later.  People who visit get to think to themselves, "Wow. These people know how to decorate. And look! They must be too busy to go to the gym. They probably work out right here, on the wood perimeter of the living room floor. Poor souls. Maybe there, in the 1 square foot of extra space between the sofa and the wall. Shellybean must work out over there, under the window. Her husband more-than-likely lifts his weights way over there, on the other side of the room, right next to that lamp. Aw, aren't they dedicated? I wonder why they don't look like they're in shape, though..."

I'm sure if you're reading this post you're asking yourself why in the world we still haven't nailed those boards in? How long could it take? Actually, if you've been following the blog you're not in the least bit surprised. Thank you for understanding that there is no reason good enough. They just haven't fallen over yet.

It is to you, dear regular readers, that I must ask,  Is there anyone else in this world who would be too lazy to use a little Gorilla Glue and at least pretend that the base boards were nailed in? Could there be anything more classless than 5 pound weights holding up loose boards?

Well yes, folks. There is. And iphone as my witness, there is a trashier way! The man and I were picking up a few things at Wallyworld (aka Walmart) yesterday and this is what we saw....





Absolute genius.

I don't know. Something about this screams "Man-in-Charge" to me. I'm not saying this just because it's all over the news lately that women are not being promoted to this level of decision making at Walmart. (If indeed that is true, Walmart should be ashamed of themselves).

I say this because my man looked at the base board under those water fountains with astonishment and then slowly smiled back at me as if to say, "Perhaps we should go back for some duct tape...."

This is why I usually shop alone.

At Target.

Happy Monday, friends :)

Thoughts from an elevator....

Please feel free to play along in a little game I like to call, "Say What?"

It goes a little something like this.....

Match the following "thoughts" to the people thinking them in the picture below....

Who was thinking....

1. "Score! We're going to the beach!"

2. "I've had my first coffee...I wonder if we can still stop at Starbucks.."

3. "I just saw the sweetest couple and they smelled like espresso, I wonder if we can stop at the cafe' before Starbucks.."

4. "Oh, my daughter said something really funny and I want to hug her, but I don't want to spill my coffee.."

5. "Has our hotel ALWAYS had free coffee in the lobby? My-oh-my, where did all this energy come from???"

6. "I'm feeling like this is going to be a great 'carmel macchiato' kind of day.."

7. "Dear good, kind and beautiful God. Please help me get through the next week with this woman. Please help her understand that all I need is my iPAD and little peace and quiet. But mostly, the peace and quiet. Amen."




It's a rhetorical game, friends.

Happy Sunday!

My six year old, the future "Playa"

"You're so beautiful, mom. I wish I could cut out pictures of you and glue them to my eyes. That way, I could look at you all day." - Quote from the youngest, who was trying to make his mother feel better on a really bad day. Smooth words little man. Three kinds of creepy, but really smooth...


Happy Friday, friends
